Editors' review

This extensive system diagnostic and report generator suffers from a major operation flaw. Everest Ultimate Edition's file-tree interface makes it very simple to find and view information about your system. The program expects a certain amount of user experience. Individual system items are not explained, although simple function operation is covered in the help file.

Everest Ultimate Edition will list most of the facts about your system. Separating your system into 15 areas, it quickly, and with few resources, lists the details of your hardware and much of your software. With just a click, you can find your CPU, motherboard, and operating system information. Without opening your PC, this app can list your PCI devices and their operating states. Where this program both shined and failed was in its report-writing functions. The quick reports were as speedy as promised. Select system information is captured and a report is written in a few seconds in either text or HTML format. However, our testers found the full system Report Wizard would run amok. The wizard would generate reports for every tested area of the system. Eventually, it would take almost all available system resources and crash itself and some other apps.

The demo disables display of some system information, but not too much to prevent you from accurately testing the program. It works well except for the Report Wizard function. Anyone in need of collecting detailed system information, and saving it in simple files, should give this flawed, but useful, diagnostic a chance.

    "Yes i'm back because c-net sent me an email so here igo"

    January 16, 2012   |   By computer-freak

    Version: Everest Ultimate Edition 5.50.2100

    Pros

    I tried to down load Everest Ultimate Edition with no luck just like so many on c-net's site.It ether don't down load,or It take's you to another site that has nothing to do with what your looking for.the hidden serprise's like virus's or facemood's that take over your home page by the way i had to block in order to get my home page back.

    Cons

    I just like how you typ in the name of what your looking for and get every thing else even when you select free it'll say free untill you've installed it then you have to pay to use it joy joy.

    Summary

    nothing good.

    "Fast and thorough."

    January 23, 2011   |   By donkpowers

    Version: Everest Ultimate Edition 5.50.2100

    Pros

    It is fast and it is thorough. It presents way more information than I could ever use. If you're into your computer, I don't think you should pass this one up. It is a serious tool.

    Cons

    The only drawback has been pointed out by the publishers and reviewers, it puts out huge reports. You have to hold it back.

    Summary

    Fast and thorough. Did I say that already.

    "Have to say it does what they say"

    December 08, 2010   |   By Shack-Bash

    Version: Everest Ultimate Edition 5.50.2100

    Pros

    The report goes into crazy detail.Ran the Report Wizard and after reviewing it found the cause of the issue I was having. It states what is inside, status, ext... Cool.

    Cons

    Initial installation failure, but reloaded and installed just fine. One more other glitch was noticed during my second opening of the program, but a shut down of the PC has changed this and I have opened multiple times since with no issue.

    Summary

    If I was to describe this product with one word, the word would be 'comprehensive'. It goes and finds everything and anything with in your system and even networks. I have not used this product to repair anything and I am not clear if it has the capability, but I have found/diagnosed issues with this program already and using a third party software designed for doing the repair. I guess I can not ask this program to cook me a 5 star/course dinner in the evening and then a world class breakfast the next morning. Good program, so far.

    "Crashes while loading"

    October 04, 2010   |   By redkcir-2009

    Version: Everest Ultimate Edition 5.50.2100

    Pros

    Wouldn't run at all, so no "Pro".

    Cons

    What is an "Elevation" error? Never heard of it, but it keeps this from running.

    Summary

    What good is a program that doesn't work? I don't know if it was the platform (7) or what.
